Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral questions of our time: the need for us to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to oppression and violence. We must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.
Martin Luther King,Jr, Nobel Prize acceptance speech
God, remove all bitterness from our hearts and give us strength and courage.
.Violence manifests itself in words, actions and inner thoughts. Do not support or engage with those whose speech incites violence toward others.
Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you.
Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.
Let us make nonviolence, both in daily life and in international relations, a guide for our actions, and let us pray for a greater diffusion of the culture of nonviolence, which involves the lesser use of weapons, both by States and by citizens.
Non-violence, which is the quality of the heart, cannot come by an appeal to the brain.
I have to deal with my anger with care, with love, with tenderness, with nonviolence.
Thich Nhat Hanh
The more we practice nonviolence in our words, thoughts and actions the more peaceful will be our inner state.
Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.
The ultimate way to solve human problems is with nonviolence.
Nonviolence is not just abstention from war, fighting, or animal flesh. It is abstention from negative thoughts and negative speech.
Nonviolence means avoiding not only external physical violence but also internal violence of spirit. You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him.
Martin Luther King Jr.
Nonviolence is essentially based on recognizing the humanity in every one one of us.
Grace Lee Boggs
Nonviolence is the answer for the questions of our time. Love will conquer evil every time.
